If you’re applying for a legal role, you may be required to take a Kenexa test as part of the recruitment process. Kenexa offers a variety of aptitude tests and assessments aimed to examine every candidate's strengths and weaknesses, as well as their personality traits and values. The Kenexa series of tests is as follows:
CAT stands for Computer Adaptive Tests. These Kenexa tests consist of three subject types including logical, numerical and verbal reasoning. As you progress through each test, the questions will gradually become more difficult.
Kenexa Logical Reasoning Test
Often known as Abstract Reasoning tests, the Kenexa logical reasoning test requires you to use logic to connect different shapes and patterns together.
Kenexa Infinity Series
The infinity series includes two separate tests:
Numerical reasoning - you’ll have just 20 minutes to complete this numerical reasoning test containing 20 questions.
Verbal reasoning - just as above, you’ll have 20 minutes to complete this 24 question verbal reasoning test.
The BMQ is similar to the infinity series, but it’s pitched at a managerial level. The verbal and numerical test questions are all related to the everyday challenges you'll face in a managerial role. Each test is 15 minutes long and finishes with an additional 20 minute personality test.
Kenexa Prove It Series
The prove it series is Kenexa’s online portal with over 1,000 different tests. These tests are relevant for specific job roles and they enable an employer to focus on whether applicants show they have the core skills needed to succeed at the role they’re applying for.
